UMaine softball capsule vs. Husson

By Larry Mahoney, BDN Staff


Time, site: Tuesday, 4 p.m., Kessock Field, Orono

Records: Maine 15-22, Husson 9-10

Last meeting: Maine 6-0 on 3/30/11

Top hitters: Maine — LF Kali Burnham (.346-2 HR-16 RBI), 3B Terren Hall (.315-7-29, 7 SB), Jennifer Eberhardt (.305-3-15), DH Meghan McLain (.273-2-9); Husson — 3B Aimee Mortensen (.429-0-8), DH Kelly Naegelin (.412-2-16), RF Courtney Hill (.343-0-6, 19 stolen bases), C Sarah Risser (.333-0-6)

Pitching matchups: Maine — RH Ashley Kelley (4-10, 4.20 ERA) RH Beth Spoehr (8-8, 3.97), RH Kylie Sparks (3-4, 3.69); Husson — RH Kody Lyon (5-6, 4.39), RH Kelly Naegelin (1-3, 3.21), RH Amanda Ryan (1-1, 1.69)

Outlook: The Black Bears will look to rebound from their weekend series with Stony Brook in which the Seawolves took two of three and hit .333. This will give Maine’s pitchers a chance to work out some flaws before this weekend’s crucial home series with Albany. Husson has won four in a row, outscoring its opponents 45-0. Lyon limited Maine to one run through four innings in their earlier meeting before Maine erupted for four runs in the fifth inning. McLain and Risser were Brewer High School teammates.
